This horticulturist’s best advice? Invest in a soil test before investing one cent of money or a second of your valuable time shopping for plants.
Where can you get a soil test, how do you sample and prepare your soil for testing, where do you send it, what does it cost, and what should you do with the results? Well, this Sunday, March 13, the Easton Lions Club is holding a televised charity auction at the Oliver Ames High School cafeteria from 2-8 p.m., and Garden-911 is donating two gift certificates for home soil testing.
Below is a link to the Lions’ auction site where you can learn more. To bid on these certificates, know that this is a live auction item so you must be present at the auction to bid:

So come on down on Sunday, support the Lions and our community, and support the safe, smart stewardship of your land, starting with a soil test. I’ll be there volunteering, so please feel free to find me and say hello.
If you don’t win the bidding, thanks for being a good sport and supporting the Lions.
